Summary: There are 3 usb ports and it's a common problem that the two on the right side stop working. google it and you will see for yourself. I do a lot of mulitmedia work so this laptop is fast becoming useless for me. Also it's quite sluggish doing the most mundane of tasks. it wasn't at first, but it's not the workhorse that other acers have been.
Summary: It defeats the purpose of the unit being a laptop. Can't take the stupid thing to bed. It's REALLY frustrating. The idea of purchasing a USB wifi adapter seems like a cheap fix, but you'd think ACER could solve the problem themselves. I took my laptop to MicroCenter. First they said it was a software problem. Then they said they had to wipe my computer clean. Then they said it was a hardware problem and had to wait for ACER to send the new wifi adapter.
Summary: In my opinion Pros:Price Cons:Bad perfomance Extremely Slow. Terrible speakers that make a scratching nose when the volume is up.Update:The speakers issue is frustrating.If i have many programs open i can't watch any video because of the awful noise.
Summary: I was mistaken to buy this computer and if I was a professional or at least knew how to check the computer's balance in 'brain activity' I wouldn't buy it. According to the high amoun of memory given, the processor power should be higher to work properly. Since the first day I had problems with how slow it is, how different type of programms doesn't open, or that I cannot view photos on facebook. It's frustrating as I already bought it.
Summary: The computer itself is all that I asked of it, the web cam is good as is the DVD, tiny problem, how does it work? As a computer Luddite I was left in the dark as to how many of the functions work, and I still don't know as there is no instruction book. Tried getting hold of Acer but all they have is an 08 number which, alas is invalid in France.So it would appear that Acer back up is a none starter or do Acer assume that everybody knows how they work?
Summary: I already replaced the keyboard twice as the pieces are easily flipped off. It constantly overheats, I can get about one hour of use before it shuts itself down. The Case cracked because it gets too hot and its very noisy because of the fan; last Acer I buy. Wife has a Toshiba bought the same day, works as it did new!
Acer Aspire 5250..diventa quasi inutilizzabile dopo 2 anni!
27 February 2013
Summary: Ho acquistato questo splendido portatile nel marzo 2012 in un negozio di computer che si chiama Virus a Torino, conosciuto anche per la buona assistenza fornita. Il marchio è Acer, occorre però precisare che l'azienda non produce PC ma li assembla soltanto usando hardware (componenti del pc) di altre aziende come vi dirò tra poco in descrizione. Il prezzo è di circa 400 euro.
Pros: design elegante, comodo da portare in giro
Cons: processore lento, surriscaldamento, problemi con la batteria (alimentatore?) dopo pochi anni, ecc
